Taking the stage at the 2020 Billboard Music Awards, Lil Nas X said he'll be dropping 'the greatest album of all time' and his new music era will begin in 'Nasvember'
Lil Nas X, who released his platinum EP '7' back in June, 2019, just announced that he's finally going to release his debut studio album. Fans of Lil Nas X have been waiting for quite some time for the 'Old Town Road' rapper to drop his debut studio album, but have only been disappointed until now. Taking the stage at the 2020 Billboard Music Awards, Nas X said that he'll be dropping "the greatest album of all time" in 2021 and will begin teasing it from "Nasvember".
The official Pop Crave Twitter account tweeted about it saying, "Lil Nas X teases his debut studio album in #BBMAs acceptance speech for Top Hot 100 Song: 'Look out next month for Nasvember – in 2021 I’m dropping the greatest album of all time!'" The account also tweeted screenshots from Nas X's Instagram where he wrote "2021 gonna be me in God Mode. I can’t f**king wait" and said, "Lil Nas X teases his new music era will kick-off this November: Nasvember."
Earlier in the night, BBMAs tweeted about Nas X winning the award for the Top Hot 100 song alongside Billy Ray Cyrus saying, "Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus win Top Hot 100 Song for 'Old Town Road'! #BBMAs."
